Hi friends!! I'm Courtney Paige and the founder of A Paige Of Positivity. I am the recipe developer, photographer, expert taste tester, and more around here!
You'll find a variety of recipes around here that focus on simple, attainable ingredients. Some are more macro-friendly and others are better for that sweet tooth, like these desserts! If you're looking for reader favorites, start with this zesty bowl of Spicy Corn Feta Dip and pair it with these Spinach Feta Ranch Turkey Burgers.
Maybe you didn't know...
A little about me: I adore my friends and family. My now fiancé, Jack, and I have been together since we were 11. I'll save you the math; that's 6th grade and 14 years ago now. We're getting married!!! Ahh, it still feels surreal to say after dating for so long. I am the oldest of 4 girls. I love traveling around the globe, and exploring new things; whether that be related to design, entrepreneurship, or food. I live for game nights, surrounded by laughter, wine, and charcuterie boards. In the mornings, you’ll find me full of life and embracing movement, often my ‘me time’. I can’t hold a song tune but I can carry laughter - which you’ll most likely do if you see me dance. Almost all dishes I make result in a disaster of a kitchen (which my roommate/partner/best friend, Jack, really likes ;). I am a new enthusiast to rollerblading, like to go for walks/bike rides, and probably the only TV show I can quote is Friends.
My current passions are turning this blog into a mini empire, raising our mini goldendoodle, Georgia, and traveling with Jack, our families, and friends. Some would say, I like to be busy.
How A Paige Of Positivity came about
A Paige Of Positivity (APOP) came to fruition during my junior year at Michigan State. It started as a Instagram 'Paige' where I showcased aesthetically pleasing pictures of food, my life as an interior design student, a mix of fitness and college lifestyle, and everything else in between.
When Covid-19 impacted the whole world in 2020, I found myself with much more time to dedicate to APOP. Fed up with Instagram's algorithm, I bought the domain to apaigeofpositivity.com and launched this blog! In just under two years, it's grown to places I could never imagine. We moved back to Michigan in the summer of 2022 and I that's when I took Blogging Full-time.
I love a pun - and that's why this blog uses my middle name: Paige. It was much easier to put a spin on words with Paige instead of Courtney. A Paige Of Positivity brought me a lot of light and joy while I battled an Eating Disorder; Read more about my journey here.

More about Courtney & the Blog
I sure do! I almost always refer to my Blog as 'APOP'. It's easier to say and pretty catchy! A Paige Of Positivity is lovely, but a mouthful sometimes.
